Cigar Box Purse?

 Good afternoon, everyone! For lack of a proper Loli purse, I'm making a cigar box purse!  

So, I was graciously given this awesome cigar box yesterday :
(except for some reason mine didn't come with a clasp)

I know I'll be lining it, and putting a small mirror on the inside of the lid, but I wanted your opinions on further embellishment/utility:

Should I decoupage or paint it, or leave it as is (except, of course, for at least a bit of trim)? My style is... kind of classic/sweet... I like sweet, but not sugary sweet. I usually end up looking like the child of Classic and old-school Sweet.

What kind of decoration would you like to see on it? any particular motifs/images/whatever?

Should I give it a handle or a strap?

Sorry about all the questions, it's been a long time since I made one of these, and I've never attempted to Loli-fy a cigar box, and I figured it might be fun to brainstorm a little and maybe get a few ideas... maybe I'll make this a regular hobby and start a line of Loli cigar-box purses!

Thanks! I look forward to your ideas!
